Hi, I've recently been getting BSODs. (Copy and pasted the error from event viewer below). I (accidently :) ) reformatted my hard drive just a few hours ago, so I still only have the bare minimum installed, so I think that rules out software issues since the problem still happens after the reformat? I haven't installed any new hardware recently either. One thing though, it's summer time and I live in southern California and my PC is in a room with 2 other computers in the back of the house where there's poor air circulation and it's hot as [bleep] right now. IIRC, the BSOD started happening when it started to become hot. Right now, it's 10:30 at night and I only have firefox open and looking at ATItools, my graphics card is at 63 degrees Celsius. I haven't looked, but I can imagine it can get pretty hot during the summer day time with a video game running.

As I said earlier, it's 10:30 so I'm going to go to bed now. :) Hope I see some answers in the morning. :)

Some results show that this is related to Zone Alarm. Do you have that installed already? If so you could try updating or removing it. Also can you get into Safe Mode at all?

a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.

5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem.

Copy the information from the blue screen and look it up on the Aumha website to tell you where the problem is occuring.


We can go from there to find your problem.
